Just launched a site yesterday http://craigsjobwatcher.com and it's been fast for as long as I've been developing it. It really launched Monday, started putting it out there yesterday, and I'm currently notified of every new hit at this point (I know I'll get tired of that soon). However, I went to sleep last night to a fast response time (<1sec ish per page), to this morning when I get anywhere from 30 seconds to 60 seconds for a response time. This is for every page (script fed), from the ones that just feed an html page and process nothing to the ones that load a LOT and I expect to take perhaps up to 3 seconds.
I've no idea what's changed, but no one is going to stay on a page that takes 30 seconds to load each page.
I was concerned it was my program... that somehow something happened to it (config change, etc)... however when I attempted to hit phpmyadmin from the link in panel, that also was slow. Not just slow, but load times between 1 to 2 minutes per page. So I know this has nothing to do with my code, because it has nothing to do with phpmyadmin. However, I'm not have any issues with other domains I host here, or even subdomains of craigsjobwatcher.com. This is limited to the top level domain itself.
Does any one know how to trouble shoot a shared server? Restart the http? Anything that might kick start this back to normal?
